Would that card fit in my computer and do my PCI slots accept PCI express 2.0 x16. I have a PCI x16.. dont think its 2.0 tho, I am 200 miles away from my cmp atm and I wanna find a graphics card I can get by the time I get home. my computer is a HP Elite m9150f. The link is here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and what power supply do I need to be able to run my computer again with the graphics card. If you can please find a good one for me I am a nooby I just started on my graphic card research Power supply is 2 much to handle right now. PS (Human Biology sucks :)  )....

you need to measure the internal dimensions of your case from the newegg pics it looks quite small and already overcrowded. That is a large card at 11.2 inchs long and takes up two pci slots. It will run hot due to what looks like terrible airflow. You will need two six pin pci power connectors. About the only thing that the hp has which would be required to run that card is the correct type of a pci slot, it is where the current card is now is now it is a pci-e 2.0x16

You might be better off getting a GTX460. The highly clocked ones are nearly as fast as the GTX470, but emit less heat and need less power as well.

Oh so the PCI express slot I have used up for my GT 8500 is the correct PCI that will work for this card correct? Mind finding me a power supply I just have a good deal on this 1.258 mbs on 80 dollar discount. So the PCI slot I have is correct for the graphics card

Get a Radeon 5570 DDR3 model, will be much faster than the 8500 you have, will not need a power supply upgrade, and will fit in your case.

As an FYI, don't keep posting looking for faster help, not good forum etiquete.

That card will not work in your computer. It requires too much power for your power supply to run, and it looks to be too large for the motherboard layout. It will work with your PCI express slot though 2.0 is backwards compatible.

Measure the space you have. Without seeing how your case is setup can't tell. And I would not run it with your current power supply.

Can someone find me a power supply for this card? I will buy.. I just need a power supply for the cmp. I think 9.5 inch will fit in my mid tower computer case.
